Happy New Year!
I gave this TEDx Talk about teacher voice at National Louis University in Chicago, Illinois last September. And a fellow Teachers Who Pray member brought to my attention that Jesus Christ and prayer are also considered “taboo” topics in schools. Truth is, faith among teachers and staff shouldn’t be taboo at all. We have the legal right to pray to the Lord in our schools, alone or with each other, just as long as students are not present. We can also share our testimonies of God at work in our lives, just as long as we do so with grace and tact. We just need the “courage” to do it. –Marilyn Anderson Rhames

Round Two of Teachers Who Pray!
August 12, 2013
As we embark on a new school year–and the second full year of Teachers Who Pray–let’s take the time to pray for all the teachers across our land. This is also a great time to start a TWP chapter at your school!
TWP chapter leader Sue Feigley, who teaches 2nd grade in Baton Rouge, Louisiana just sent in this inspiring testimony:
“The Lord led me to start a prayer group at my school one year ago. In the natural, I was not prepared, and was afraid of failure. The Holy Spirit led, and anointed it. It was amazing. Our prayer meeting was every Tuesday morning at 7:30 before school. We didn’t miss a Tuesday. There were on average 6 to 8 people who joined with me. I can’t begin to tell you how the Lord worked in our school. He is an amazing God. Our school had the best standardized test results in its history. The teachers made much deeper connection with each other. As His word says, “A three cord strand is not easily broken.” I am so looking forward to all that God is going to do this next school year!” — Sue Feigley
